In The Complete Beatles Songs, Steve Turner shatters many well-worn myths and adds a new dimension to the Fab Four's rich legacy.
This beautifully packaged book examines every Beatles-penned song and the inspiration behind them; with fresh research and packed with new information, there are revelations aplenty. The book covers the Fab Four's entire output chapter by chapter and includes a complete set of printed lyrics to accompany each song, used with exclusive permission from the band's music publishers.
Who was "just seventeen" and made Paul's heart go "boom"? Who was "Lady Madonna"? Was there really an Eleanor Rigby? What inspired "Happiness is a Warm Gun"? Why was Paul the "walrus" and what inspired the lyrics to Ringo's "Octopus's Garden"?
Steve Turner has written for a wide range of publications, including leading US music magazine Rolling Stone and the New Musical Express in the UK. His books include Van Morrison: Too Late to Stop Now and Trouble Man! The Life and Death of Marvin Gaye.
